Starting from the depths

We all have to start from somewhere…” were the last words he remembered from another strange dream before he woke up in sweat at almost noon. Lately he was sleeping a lot. And he had no energy or desire to clean up his house.

His aunt likened him to a troglodyte when she passed by one day to drop off some food.

At least he was eating well. But that didn’t matter if he wasn’t feeding his soul.

He needed to find a way to get back on track, to exercise both body and mind.

In the silence of a word

It is said that the power of words lies not in what is said but what is left untold.
In what lies in the depths of your soul,
What torments you,
What in the night tosses and turns you.

In the thoughts that come to mind when you sit alone
In silence.

In the images that skim your thoughts
That make you laugh at a single memory
At the remembrance of a phrase,
A gesture,
A face.

In the force of love that torrents in your heart
In the acts that make you fall even deeper
In the love that that very one shows
At the most unexpected of times
In the sweetest ways.

In the serenity that overwhelms your being.
In the calmness that ripples over your psyche.
In the tranquility that grips your presence.
In the silence of all the things you need not utter.
